[RFC] Add --git option to log, incoming, history and tip

I've prepared a patch which adds a --git option to log, incoming,
history and tip.
The motivation for doing so is to be able to easily see the additional
things the --git diff format provides. (I had a couple of otherwise
"empty" changesets where just the +x bits changed.)
(I realize that you can force this through the --config switch, but
this is neither convenient, nor particularly discoverable, IMO.)
On problem with the patch as it stands, though, is that in other
places where --git is allowed, the short form -g is also allowed. I
was not able to add this here, though, because the graphlog extension
already uses the -g flag on log.
Do others see value in adding --git to these commands?
What about the "conflict" with -g and the graphlog extension?
Submit this patch as is?
Remove -g from graphlog and use it here?
(Either in this patch, or a followup?)
